Strange things happen in isolation. The story of an elusive earthworm, a hungry thrush and a curious birdwatcher takes shape over one-thousand digital scans.

The title is a blend of "orin" coming from the Greek word for "bird", and "thonics" (or chthonics), meaning "beneath the earth" or "subterranean".
